    Submarine Video on Visions Fantastic

    This visions fantastic has some great video of the submarine ride. It appeared to look like an official Disney Website, but it is actually independent.

    Ooo.. Finding Nemo soundtrack overlayyyy...

    I can't wait till we get actual concrete details about what this will entail. Honestly, I'm really excited for this ride. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt and I think as long as the subs are back, people should be happy as well despite the Pixar tie in. My 2 cents.
    Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

    Sorry, it looked like this site was run by Disney. Checking into it further, it appears not to be an official site by Disney, but an independent group:

    I wouldn't really call it a rumor any more...it is pretty clear that it will happen, it's just unannounced.

    Yeah... watching the video, it's sad to know how good it was, and how bad it will be with Nemo. So unTomorrowland, so unDisney, so unInteresting...

    So you must have already ridden the subs with the nemo overlay? No? Cause last I checked they were still closed. Lets wait and see what Disney does with this attraction before we slam it.

    No, let's not. Let's just use common sense. Let's make it clear before the travesty happens that destroying everything Walt created and stood for is never acceptable.

    Closing the subs was destroying something Walt had created. Opening them again will be restoring that. He was open to change. I'm willing to wait for the Nemo theme before judging it. When the subs originally opened, just riding them...no matter what the underwater scenes were...was pretty cool. It was a simpler time. We're a little more sophisticated today and the old scenes...while great nostalgia... weren't real exciting. How cool would it be if they could put in some real fish! I just hope the execution of the Nemo theme isn't done the same way they did Tarzan's Treehouse: just toss in some cheap fiberglas characters and say, "See...it's, like, all Tarzan now!"
    "Yesterday, a man walked up to me and said, 'Isn't it a shame that Walt Disney couldn't be here to see this?' and I said, "He did see this, that's why it's here."

    Like ive been saying im happy the subs are back, however I hate hate hate the Nemo overlay it doesnt make sense for tommorowland AND theres too many pixar rides already. However, the plan is still to wait untill the subs open then complian and b1tch like crazy untill Matt Ouimet and the Imagineers take note and are forced to change the overlay to something more fitting for tommorowland.

    It's getting tiring reading through the same arguments over and over and over and over again.

    I am just wondering how Finding Nemo does not make sense for the subs. What would make sense? Sure its in tomorrowland, but it is also in an area that is considered part of Fantasyland. It seems like a movie that takes place almost entirely underwater makes sense to me. I hate the argument that everything has to be perfectly themed- the subs were futuristic because they represent the future of exploration. The majority of our planet is underwater and we haven't explored even a fraction of their depths. The oceans are our last unexplored frontier on earth- that is what makes them futuristic.

    As for the overlay, I hope it contains characters from all disney movies that are connected to the ocean, Little Mermaid, Nemo, Atlantis. I hope that it is subtle and not too cartoonish in the way it is executed.

    So seriously, if Nemo is not an apropriate and logical overlay choice, what would be? Subs in space?

    Well, no one's holding a gun to your head. Don't read them.

    MEanwhile, here's a repeat of why I can feel free to use my common sense to judge Nemo before it's installed.

    1) It's unTomorrowland. Disneyland is a THEMEpark. Putting in rides that defile the theme defiles the park.

    2) It's unDisney. Nemo is a Disney presentation of a Pixar film. As good as Indy is, and as good as Star Tours was for a while, they eat away at the feeling of being in a truly Disney land. And, both of those rides were new rides with new vehicles, built to tell a new kind of story. Nemo, by all accounts, is going to take advantage of "grandfathering" and keep the sub ride and vehicle essentially the same. The heart of the story Walt and his Imagineers told back in 1959 is still relevant and exciting. If indeed the first ever E ticket needs to be torn out to build new showbuildings and vehicles to tell that Disney story, so be it. But don't turn an important piece of Disney history into another Gummi Glen-style commercial, especially for a Pixar film which doesn't need any more advertising.

    3) It's unInteresting. If anyone tries to claim storms, shipwrecks, underwater cities, volcanoes, and sea monsters are unexciting, I dare them to tell me what about Nemo is so much more exicitng. Hmmm... an aquarium! The fascinating world of dentistry! Oh boy, I changed my mind, give me a FastPass. Dory was a funny character, but aside from that, the movie was a snoozefest. And, more importantly, it isn't interesting in the sense of Immersion into Interesting Illusion. The idea of Nemo is very mundane. If you can see most of the show elements by going to your local Walmart, it's not the makings of an interesting illusion.
